President Trump has the lowest approval rating of any US president six months into the job, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Only 36% of Americans think he's doing well. That's lower than Gerald Ford after he pardoned Richard Nixon. 70 % of Americans say President Trump has acted in an unpresidential manner since taking office, 68 percent don’t see him as a positive role model and 67 percent disapprove of his use of Twitter, according to the poll. Fifty-seven percent say that the more they hear about Trump the less they like him versus 29 percent who like him more. 56 percent say unpresidential conduct by Trump is “damaging to the presidency overall.” Trump’s behavior comes in for some criticism even in his own camp. Nearly four in 10 Republicans, 38 percent, say his conduct has been unpresidential rather than “fitting and proper” for a president.
